The objective of this project has been to use GIS software and analytical skills to illustrate and assess the factors which contribute to the homeless shelter occupancy problem in Toronto. This will assist relevant organizations in their efforts to mitigate the issue. Using spatial analytical techniques, it was possible to determine the current status of homeless shelters in relation to the aforementioned factors. Additional GIS techniques that were used to assess the issue include network analysis, neighbourhood analysis and vector overlay; tools such as geoprocessing, union, intersect, clip, dissolve, etc.
